Exactly. (Woman here) (3.00 / 1)
I've lived in 3 areas in Texas since 1999 - Austin suburbs, Dallas suburbs, and now Fort Worth. Every time I've been presented with a good Democratic candidate, I've supported and voted for them. It's very sad that there have been times when there was no actual candidate for whom I could vote!

And I agree with your assessment of the word "lazy" - its use in this context is reprehensible.

Lazy Could Also Apply to White People (0.00 / 0)
Lazy could also be applied to white people.

Sadly the truth is the majority of Hispanics DO NOT vote.

Time off from work could be an obstacle, however, people who choose NOT to vote are, in my opinion, LAZY. It doesn't matter what color or gender they are.

Kneejerk accusations of racism are often counterproductive, especially when directed toward someone who has voted Democrat consistently their whole life, working for the state and local party, belonged to a trade union for the last 25 years, marched in anti-war protests for 3 wars now, participated in the Central American Solidarity movement in the 1980s trying to prevent a US invasion of Nicaragua or El Salvador, protested against Apartheid in the 1970s, worked in AIDS advocacy in the 1980s etc. .

To be called "racist" by someone whose "radical" credentials don't much fgo beyond reading Noam Chomsky or leaving an internet comment is, at the least, funny as Hell and at the worst just self-serving rather than liberating in any sense of the word.

You kids are going to have to pull your heads out of your asses if you are ever going to achieve anything in the sense of a "mass" movement.
